The beautiful turquoise color of the Oasis yarn gave me the name, Bisbee, of this lovely blouse. Bisbee turquoise is renowned for its beauty and color depth.

The delicate but simple intarsia lace panels form figure-flattering vertical lines. The dainty buttonband details, i cord neckline, waist shaping and softly fluttering sleeve and body hems all combine into a gorgeous feminine sweater that you’ll treasure.

Pattern Notes

This sweater is worked in pieces from the bottom up then seamed prior to working the 3/4 length sleeves and the bottom hem. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole. The cap is shaped with short rows, then the sleeves are worked in the round.

Waist shaping is easily modified, as decreases and increases occur in the stockinette panels adjacent to the lace panels.

Total length is also easily modified in the hem to armhole area by working even longer prior to hip decreases, by working the waist longer, or by working even longer after the bust increases.

Simple crochet edging is used for the buttonband.
